You won't be disappointed when you dine at Gower Street Bistro. Fresh Northwest cuisine, yummy bread, and scrumptious desserts. It would be more of a couples restaurant or family with older children. Fairly pricey but not more than any good restaurant you find in a large city.

We had dinner here one night during our otherwise "kid friendly" meal weekend. I thought the food and setting here was special and unique. The place is pretty small, but food is fresh and creative. Eclectic salads, seafood, chicken, meat dishes.

We love the food at the Everette street bistro in portland, so we looked forward to the same in Cannon beach at it's sister restaurant.

The service was good...the wait staff was way friendlier than in PDX, but there was no espresso coffee! Sleepy Monk is right across the street, yet unlike in PDX, they do not serve their coffee...sad!

My sister and 6 year old daughter liked it...

As always, the Pomme Frties are the best!

Gee, where to start?
We had reservations for 6:15, we arrived at 6:17 and was greeted by a rude hostess that informed us that our reservations were for 6 pm and it was now 6:30.
Looking around I noticed that the place was mostly empty and I wondered, from it's school cafeteria appeal, why we bothered with reservations.
We were promptly seated in a table in the main traffic area, which meant the staff had to try to squeeze past us repeatedly.
The table was very small and tipped easily if you put any weight on it.
The menu had very little variety however it did have a pulled pork sandwich and meat loaf, as any upscale bistro would have.
We were served fairly promptIy and, what did the waitress say? Oh yeah "the kitchen is fast tonight." Actually it was more like 'the bum's rush' or pay us your $60-$100 and quickly leave please.
I did have the pleasure sharing my confining little spot with a couple of people that came in off the street from the side door who looked as if shampoo and soap were foreign concepts to them. Of course, because I was in the main traffic area I almost felt obliged to offer them some of the bread that came with the meal, which was actaually pretty good.
My salad was pretty good and wife's chicken dish was good as well.
She also enjoyed her mojito and I enjoyed the paper sign on the glass side door announcing that they had their liquor license, another quality that enamored me to this cozy little bistro
The bill came to $56, good thing I just had salad and water. I left a $4 tip which is the second smallest tip I've ever left (someone has to try to get less than a 20% tip from me).
I did notice that they had Silver Oak cab for $85 a bottle, so I'll give them credit for that because it's $60 retail and restaurants usually sell it for $125.
Did I mention that the parking in the rear was impossible to get to and I spent almost 10 minutes trying to find a place to park? They haven't been open long, and I doubt they'll stay open.

Pros: The food was pretty good

Cons: atmosphere, service, attitude, parking, the tables, size of entree, prices

This place looked adorable, so we had to go visit while in Cannon Beach this weekend. Unfortunately, the whole visit was very dissapointing. I tried to order a cocktail with dinner, only to be informed that there was no bartender (on a Friday night) so cocktails were not available. There was only one waitress for the entire restaurant, so I know she was doing the best job she could. Then I received my entree of Halibut and it was VERY overcooked and tasted really fishy, like it was past its prime. Very unacceptable considering it was a $22 entree. In better news, my husband's steak was very tasty, and he was happy because he wanted a beer, not a cocktail. Maybe this is just a better place for brunch, but I would avoid anything seafood or fish.

Anytime I go to the beach, I look for an excuse to stop in at this bistro. I had passed over it a couple of times until finally I decided to drop in. My absolute favortie dish during brunch is the Crabcakes Benedict. I can only tell you to try them. Great morning cocktails and a friendly staff.

Pros: right next to beach, crabcakes benedict!
